Super Smash Quest - Story - Chapter 276: Omnipotent Guest Week
Date: April 29th & 30th, 2006.
Editor's Note: Normally I don't include damage, but the damages in here are too insane to be forgotten. I'll probably leave them in whenever they reach absurd levels.
The Void: "FOOLS! YOU HAVE MADE ME THE NEW GOD OF NINTENDUS! WATCH AS I DESTROY... EVERYTHING!!!!"
Aribar: "We're kind of... What's that voice?"
Julian: "UP!" *Julian jumps up, activating his Rocket Boots.*
Garrick: "...it's him."
Julian: "...You gotta be *censored.* kidding me!"
Azure looks at Julian. How he wished he still could fly and teleport.
Charles: "So... after all this time... The Void is here."
Aribar looks to Aetos.* "... Did you conjure him?"
Metal Man (GM): Julian leaps, but a gravity field sucks him to the ground; a sphere of dark energy emerges from the middle of the tower. It's... the sphere of darkness.
Julian: "YOU GOTTA BE *CENSORED KIDDING ME!"
Aetos: "Huh? Not just me... But you all helped... EVERYONE conjured him."
Azure: "Calm down."
Metal Man (GM): The whole tower is sucked into the darkness; and so... is all of Nintendus. The Questers reappear, standing... somewhere else.
Aribar cries out as he is engulfed in darkness. And reappears.
Metal Man (GM): The Questers are standing in the hallway of some building... inside... the X-zone.
Metal Man (GM): Pieces of Nintendus are flying around everywhere.
Julian: "Deja Vu..."
Metal Man: "...This is not good."
Azure: "Shattered... reality..?"
Metal Man (GM): It's... Atlantis. Perfectly functioning; nay... it's alive again. This is the hallway... that leads to the main room.
Julian: "*CENSORED* DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN!"
Garrick looks around... then starts walking.
Metal Man: "...We have defeated Kuja... but we must stop this as well."
Aribar: "We never do get a break, huh?"
Aetos smirks, "Calm down Julian."
Julian throws his arms up in frustration as he heads down the hallway.
Aetos snickers at him.
Charles: "The destruction of order begets chaos. The destruction of chaos begets order." *He goes down the hallway.*
Aribar takes a deep breath and follows the others, Moonlight in his grasp.*
Azure calmly places his hood over his head. He says one last prayer for Kuja and the avatars he had controlled. He opens his eyes. "Now then. On to matters ahead."
Aetos shakes his head, and follows behind everyone. .oO(I am not bound to serve him now. Once he is destroyed, his power will be attained by me.)
Metal Man (GM): The Questers reach... the triangular room. It's a three-walled room... with stained glass. On the green stained glass, lies the Solarian crest.
Metal Man (GM): There, an image of machines, like Grodus and the Solarian Temple, as well as Sha'Fol, with his green sword pointing upwards.
Metal Man (GM): On the next stained glass is a blue image, of the Whallerarian Crest. People leaving Earth on ships are shown, as well as magic and an image of Mars in the background.
Metal Man (GM): The last... red,.. blood red one... is of the Maricians. It shows an endless tide of machines destroying and taking over Earth. The outlines of the Questers are there... in fact, a flashback, for those who were there, of themselves fighting Kuja... and losing.
Metal Man (GM): But what appears next... is not that. ...It is a dark version of Metal Man.
Dark Metal Man: "Missed me?"
Aribar: "You again..."
Garrick immediately draws his sword...
Metal Man (GM): It looks so very familiar... something odd about him.
Aetos: "Who wouldn't."
Julian: "Not you again..."
Dark Metal Man: "The time has come, for me to properly introduce myself."
Metal Man (GM): He takes his own armor off, relatively effectively.
Julian: "Go ahead, I don't *Censored.* care anymore."
Xalron: "I... am Xalron, the master planner of this whole event. Well, not actually; I just happened to fulfill the post of your leader for a time."
Metal Man points at him. "That is a lie. I've been here the whole time."
Julian: "Mets, take off your helmet."
Metal Man takes off his helmet; he looks similar, but far more good, than the dark being to his other side.
Garrick stands there, his own mask covering his anger..
Xalron: "You have not been puppets, though; I have been around longer than Kuja."
Julian: "Throw it at him."
Garrick: "...yes, you have."
Xalron: "This was the aim of the Questers, since I came..."
Xalron: "...My world was not destroyed."
Garrick takes a few steps forward, a low, metallic growl rumbling in his throat..
Xalron: "...Nintendus... is Earth. And I was sent into the future of it... I must bring back my time and my people by destroying this nonsense you call Nintendus."
Garrick: "You were the dark being that was controlling Nova."
Metal Man: "...I would never plan such a thing! You... are truly vile. For even if this is Earth; you are nothing."
Julian: "...That's *censored.* impossible."
Xalron: "Nuh-uh-uh! I am worse than that; I am a nobody. You let yourself become too obsessed with the past, and now... I exist."
Aetos: "Still Earth?..."
Aribar: "I hate time travel..."
Azure folds his arms. He listens, troubled by the words.
Xalron: "...All I must do is destroy all of you, and end this timeline. With the X-zone, I can restore my land... and send you all back home."
Julian: "This ain't *censored.* Earth! If it was, there'd be landmarks 'n *censored.* and I'd be able to tell!"
Garrick: "...no... he's right."
Xalron: "...I am afraid, Julian, you ignore the fact that all landmarks were destroyed... in the Solarian-Neo-Earthling war. It's true; Magitek is worthless compared to nanotechnology. Nanotechnology, though, ran amok, and ate everything down to the planet's crust, where Nova managed to hide away. All was dead... except I, who had been cruelly sent to his worthless time. ...The solarians you have seen... are all fake. ...They all died. And now, to--"
Metal Man (GM): *FLASH.*
Charles: "Even if they all died... there are still parasites left behind by them."
Aribar: "Gah!" *The elf takes a step back from the flash. .*
Aetos is caught off guard by the flash.
Sardis Mongul: "I'm afraid I'm a bit late. But it is not too late."
Aribar: "And who are you?"
Metal Man (GM): Sardis looks to Xalron, and coughs. He clutches... the rest of his journal.
Julian: "...Is this *censored.* Omnipotent Guest Week or somethin'?!"
Sardis Mongul: "It is I... Sardis Mongul... which, as he said, all the other Solarians you saw were fake. However... I... am real."
Xalron: "A filthy lie; you're more likely to be one of Kuja's contingency men."
Charles: "Regardless if he is, I have something to say."
Sardis Mongul: "I have come..." *Thrusts the remains of his journal to Charles.* "To allow the end of this madness!"
Sardis Mongul: "...This man... is a being created by the splitting of a soul... he and the other fakes were generated this way."
Metal Man (GM): Sardis points at Sha'Fol, on the wall.
Sardis Mongul: "See here! A part of Wolfman! Not a Solarian!"
Metal Man (GM): He spins around a textbook in one of his hands, showing Denon.
Sardis Mongul: "See there! A part of Zio... not a Solarian!"
Aribar: .oO(What kind of mad man is this?)
Xalron: "Cease this at once!"
Sardis Mongul: "Never!" *He rips open a panel, pulling out an old tapestry of Maxamillian.* "A fake... of Jeff Maxwell! NOT A SOLARIAN!"
Julian: "...kzzt..." *twitch.*
Sardis Mongul: "That's why he... err... was so hard to kill."
Charles: "...Would explain it."
Sardis Mongul: "Now! All of those have been taken care of; you have this drudgery of a thing in front of you... he is your problem."
Sardis Mongul: "Oh! One last thing." *He takes out a photograph of Tridus.* "...A piece of Metal... oh how fragmented he is. HE, too, is not a Solarian."
Garrick doesn't know how to word it... he just stands there, staring..
Sardis Mongul: "...Now... you have all so conveniently gathered in this room... so that this can all end."
Charles: "One more piece of business: You wanted to greet the architect of the X-zone shield?"
Sardis Mongul: "...Destroy Xalron, and it's over. Nobody can come back to kill you."
Julian: "...So we gonna kill him or what? 'Cause I can't take much more of this."
Sardis Mongul: "Oh! Right."
Metal Man (GM): He points at Charles.
Charles: "I am the architect."
Sardis Mongul: "...MAKE NO MORE X-ZONE DEVICES, YOU LOONEY LUNARIAN!"
Aribar: "... Why should we believe you?"
Sardis Mongul: "...Sorry... but that's because... there won't be an X-zone for long."
Garrick: "...because, wizard."
Sardis Mongul: "I am the only surviving Solarian. And I am dying."
Garrick: "...among all the beings you have seen, you have encountered... he is the only one who has told you the truth."
Sardis Mongul: "If you do not believe me, you shall be forever plagued by nobodies!"
Julian: "Because what else is there to *censored.* believe, Ari?"
Aribar says nothing more. The elf is not sure what to think.*
Charles: "If they've been split from people... then how do you explain the Heartless?"
Sardis Mongul: *Coughs, dust flying out of his mouth.* "Oh dear... the Nanomachines are reactivating again. ...The heartless... are an illusion!"
Sardis Mongul: "Perpetrated... by this man."
Xalron: "...I've had enough of you."
Sardis Mongul: "...That's all I can say. No more, no le--GACK!"
Aetos holds the One-Winged Angel out to his side. .oO(Where did he put Oblivion?)
Metal Man (GM): Xalron punches him, and he explodes into a bunch of dust.
Julian: "And I've had e-*censored.*-nough of YOU! I'VE HAD ENOUGH OF ALL OF THIS!"
Xalron: "...His time had come. As has yours. The heartless are real, and we... the nobodies... will have all of Nintendus!"
Azure: .oO(Don't over react...)
Metal Man: "...Charles."
Charles puts away the final pages of Sardis Mongul...
Metal Man shakes him. "Hit him with the sword. The sword... of order. I know it... as he is a part of me..."
Charles unsheathes the sword of order. "This is to end your plans!" He makes a walking shuffle, then begins to run at the man. He jumps, then goes for a vertical slice.
Xalron: "Silence." *Blasts Metal away with a beam of light.*
Julian: "SO *CENSORED DO IT!" *
Xalron: "...Gahhhhh! Curse you, Locos!"
Metal Man (GM): Charles slashes him down the middle.
Charles retracts the sword.
Metal Man (GM): He stumbles backwards, falling onto the Solarian wall. It shatters... and the room increases in size. A new wall appears... a Neo-Earth one.
Aribar raises Moonlight defensively and looks inquisitively at Xalron. .*
Metal Man (GM): It shows Metal Man fleeing destruction caused by nanites and Magitek. The Solarian wall is replaced by one showing Sardis Mongul, his journal, and a people with the sun behind them.
Julian: "...What the *Censored.*."
Metal Man (GM): Xalron crumbles into dust, which then turns... into fog... which then forms... The Void.
Aetos: "Oh, Hello Mr. The."
The Void: "Gahhhh!!! You... you don't know what you've done, Locos. I was going to hit you with a nasty Keyblade! Then I, Metal--errr... *cough.* THE VOID *cough.* would triumph!"
Charles: "The Void. At least we meet face to face."
The Void: "That... stupid... scientist... and he delayed me just long enough for you to hit me."
Charles: "I've been wanting to face you ever since you first appeared on Nintendus with The Thirteen Gentlemen and the Apocalypse group."
The Void: "...But I'm a part of Metal, and Xalron was too. And Tridus... and Metal... you're hurting him. Thusly, you must become my slave."
Garrick slowly begins looking around the room more carefully... this doesn't feel... right...
The Void: "Wait, no... you are my servants. I command you!"
Aribar looks to where the real Metal Man is to see what he thinks of him.
Metal Man (GM): Metal Man is on the ground, injured by Xalron's first and last attack.
Metal Man: "Gahh... it makes sense... or does it?"
The Void: "...I guess you won't listen to me, then."
Metal Man (GM): He floats to the middle of the room.
Aetos: "...What did you command exactly?"
The Void: "Allow me to make things logical, Locos. I was protecting the people whom were to serve me. Jeff Maxwell. Phantom. Skyhigh! Aid me... and finish them!"
Sky High: "...We don't take orders from you anymore."
Jeff Maxwell: "You nearly killed me... HOW MANY TIMES?"
Julian: "This has gotten way outta hand..."
Phantom: "I didn't even get a proper burial!"
Garrick: "Enough of this."
The Void: "Grrr... then you shall just have to be with your leader."
Metal Man (GM): He shoots them aside.
Aetos: "You were shoved in a painting, what more do you want, Phantom?" He mutters.
The Void: "And this Ivan... wait a minute... he's somewhere else! ...No matter. It is time to finish this, Questers!"
Charles: "Void, you are without a corporeal form, so now I won't hold back... let's finish what we started 12 years ago!"
Metal Man (GM): Ivan appears to have vanished.
Garrick grips his sword tighter and slides his shield onto his arm..
Metal Man: "...Ivan will ensure what you do succeeds..."
Metal Man (GM): FINAL BATTLE.
Julian: "Can we just get this *Censored.* OVER with already?"
Metal Man (GM): Questers vs. THE VOID.
Aetos nods. .oO(This further pushes my suspicions of Ivan.)
Julian: "Gettin' tired of this *censored.*..."
Metal Man: "...If someone could heal me... I would aid you in your fight."
The Void: "Psh! No one fights themselves! Stay down, you fool!"
Garrick: "I have nothing."
The Void: "Now... watch what I can do! ...ARMAGEDDON!!!!"
Garrick: "!!! Brace yourselves!"
Metal Man (GM): He launches every attack ever made at Garrick, dealing a whopping instant 1000 damage.
Aribar: .oO(Veeg's attack?) "...Ouch."
Digifanatic: .oO(You must be kidding.)
The Void: "You are very powerful... but I have ways to taking you apart. I made you what you are today!"
Garrick screams. He screams loud, but it doesn't come from his voice area, more like a muffled yell. He grits his teeth, still alive apparently...
Metal Man: "He is a liar. I did my part, and he insinuated chaos into it."
Garrick: *click.* "...alright... here goes nothing..."
The Void: "I shall not go... silly Garrick."
Aetos: "Garrick?.. Oh... I was WAY OFF... I thought it was Princess Peach..."
Metal Man (GM): The Void laughs.
Garrick flips a switch in his armor, the helmet folding down. Yep, it's Garrick alright.
The Void: "You cannot hide from me!"
Digifanatic says nothing but, "At least it's nice to see you helping us."
The Void: "Now... fight me, you self-doubting technoworshiper!"
Garrick: "I'm only helping you because you need to be helped. Even someone as weak as I am can do something. I've put aside my anger... I no longer have it. I will find my place, my power. Now, enough of your taunts."
Metal Man (GM): The Void smirks, his gaseous form both hideous and freakish.
Garrick charges forward, his sword skittering sparks as he rushes at The Void, throwing himself forward to attack him. He spins like a top, mimicking Link in his own way as he slashes at him with a Windmill Spin.
Metal Man (GM): The Void does not move; rather, he lets Garrick fly right through him. No damage.
The Void: "Did you really think mere force would harm me?"
Garrick growls and lands on the other side, skidding around and facing him again, not perturbed by passing through him... .oO(...I have nothing... none of my attacks will work... the only thing left is my Final Slash, and that's pure force as well...)
Metal Man: "If you could help me... perhaps I could aid you in return. Who else knows The Void better than the original person he came from?"
Garrick: "...Mark, scan Metal. Give me medical readings... you guys hold off The Void, I'll tend to Metal."
Digifanatic: "I thought that was Tridus."
Aribar: "You sure? My magic can have him up in a flash."
Mark: "Extensive damage to cybernetic structure. In need of healing magic or energy."
The Void: "Ignore him. Fight me with your magic, mage!"
Garrick rushes to Metal's side, sheathing his sword as he goes. "Fight him, Ari... I've got this."
Digifanatic: .oO(I could swear Metal never had any Void in him...)
The Void: "That's because I ripped myself from him, Digi."
Metal Man (GM): And yes, he did just read Digi's mind.
The Void: "Because of that, he could never have me in him, for I am here and he is there!"
Garrick: "...Mark, his armor... give me a full read out. If it IS similar, we should have similar power sources."
Aribar nods to Garrick before rushing at the Void, Moonlight's blade blitzing with more electrical energy than ever before. The elf launches into a frenzied rage upon this being of pure chaos. The shortsword flicks and flies this way and that four times before the elf leaps back, finished. (Multi-Bolt Slash!)
Mark: "...It is advanced beyond our own technology, however it can accept many power sources."
Metal Man (GM): The Void hisses as he is hit all four times, the lightning allowing the sword to damage him.
The Void: "Begone, electricity mage!"
Garrick: "Right... okay... Metal, you know more than I do... how much do you need?" *reaches into the back of his armor and pulls out a small cable...*
Aribar: "It'll take more than a simple sentence to force me back!"
Metal Man: "...I would need enough to fully recharge the armor itself. For the systems are stalled; The Void did exactly enough to incapacitate me, as he did to the others. But I... have armor... and the others are not as lucky."
The Void: "...Sentence... you're a genius, Aribar! Now then. Aetos, destroy him!"
Garrick: "...then take the power of my armor. I've got enough to get you up, I think..."
The Void: "The Questers are my tools.....they have disobeyed. Only you can stop them."
Aetos: "I..er..Yeah." he throws a divine orb through his keyblade at Aribar.
Metal Man: "...Are you sure? You put a lot of work into yours."
Garrick: "You can help them... and I can help by helping you."
Metal Man looks at the battle. "...Nevermind. I am needed badly."
Garrick: "There's nothing I can do... you can. Take it."
Garrick jams the cable into one of the links on Metal's armor.
The Void: "Yes! Yesss! Hurt him enough... I need his soul to revive Matek."
Aetos: "Who is Matek?..."
Garrick: "Mark, full discharge... give him everything."
The Void: "And then... some more... and Gerald can be alive again!"
Aetos ends his turn now.
Aribar: .oO(Matek was a nobody of me?)
The Void: "Then my league of chaos can rule this X-zone!"
Digifanatic starts by trying the one common thread he has tried on many enemies such as before: the Light Punch. He follows it up with a Light Ray and then chills back with the rest.
The Void: "Not exactly. I can sacrifice your soul to revive him, thou---Gah!"
Metal Man (GM): He's smacked by the light punch and the light ray.
The Void: "Your cursed elemental attacks... how I loathe them."
Aetos looks for the location of the chaos emeralds.
Metal Man (GM): Aetos see them near Metal.
Garrick slowly begins to dip... his eyes droop as he falls to his knees..
The Void: "Now! Aetos... you must do something to start the process! Allow me... to sacrifice some of your energy to curse Aribar!"
Aribar: "Aetos, stop now or I shall smite you down!"
Garrick: "...seems... Kuja hurt me... more than I thought..."
Metal Man: "...I shall make sure your work is not in vain."
Garrick coughs hard... blood pooling at his mouth..
Metal Man (GM): The Void holds his hand out; a magical sword stabs Aetos, and then Aetos loses half of his health.
Aetos nods to Teh Voizors.
Metal Man (GM): A skull appears over Aribar... cursing him to lose 10% of his current health for the rest of the battle!
Aetos kneels to the ground..
The Void: "Hahaha!"
Garrick: "...ugh... there..."
Metal Man stands up. "Not so fast, myself."
The Void: "...Why did I have to turn my back on that jerk!"
Garrick weakly removes the cable from Metal's armor... and then falls to the ground.
Metal Man turns to Aetos. "You traitor... give me your keyblade!" He takes out his machineguns and opens fire on Aetos.
Aetos still kneeling. .oO(I wouldn't go so far as to call me a traitor... and why would I give him the keyblade, by choice?)
Metal Man puts them away, and then turns to The Void.
Aetos takes 108 damage total.
Metal Man: "You do not control the Questers; I do. And I... shall harm you deeply for what you've done!"
The Void: "A bluffer, as always."
Metal Man powers up and seems to glow... as if more pieces of himself have unified.
Garrick: "...hope... you enjoy me... bleeding at your... feet... Jeff..."
Jeff Maxwell: "Gah... my arm is touching that bleeding dope... ewww... Blood... all over... my lab coat..."
Garrick chuckles a bit, which turns into another hacking cough.
Metal Man: "We must defeat The Void with nothing! ...*cough.* I mean by causing him to become part of me again!"
Mark: "System... powering... down...*EEEOOooooo..."
Aribar: "And how do we do that?"
Metal Man goes all angry Metal Man, the one who punched down the skyscraper, and then punches The Void in the head.
Garrick lets his eyes flutter closed as his armor loses it's glow. He just lies there..
Metal Man (GM): *SMACK.*
Metal Man: "We beat the $(%& out of him!"
The Void: "No... he is simply an old, worn out man. Do not listen to him."
Metal Man: "Aribar: I will protect you from Aetos. You concentrate on zapping The Void."
Aribar: "...Just one Bolt on that vile Traitor who makes Charles look like a saint!"
Metal Man: "Oh. Right. Take him down, then."
Aribar quickly fires a bolt of electricity at Aetos before sending a storm of stars screaming through the Void.
Metal Man: "You cannot attack my Questers, Aetos. I shall get in the way."
Aetos: "I agree."
Metal Man: "Destroy The Void... and you can serve him by serving the Questers. For he is a part of me... and there is good in him... but he cannot exist alone, for he is but my heart, and not my mind or my soul."
Editor's Note: Haha, yeah right. Stupid KH dialog. Good thing it was all just another set of lies!
The Void: "I can exist, and have. I will grind you to dust for interfering."
Aetos: "Um... right..."
Metal Man: "Make your choice, 'cause if you want to keep him separated from me, I'll punch you down like that skyscraper!"
Aetos takes out his Dex and tries to scan the void.
Metal Man seems clearly angry... possibly more alive than before, seeing as he's rarely expressed such opinions before.
Dex: "...DING! Thin air. Has no attributes. End of entry."
The Void: "I am invisible to your Smash Dexes. And have been for ages."
Aetos glances at everyone on the field.
The Void: *Turns to Aetos.* "If you cannot decide, do nothing. You won't betray anyone that way."
Digifanatic continues his tirade of enlightening The Void... well, elementally. He goes for a little Matrix on this thing...
The Void: "Then I can shr"---Bzappped!
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Aetos: "Shr..." he winces.
Metal Man (GM): Digi's attack hits The Void like a hurricane.
The Void: "Grrr... worthless Digi."
Digifanatic: "Worthless? You're talking to the guy who finished off Denon and screwed up that Enigmatic Man while we had the chance..."
The Void: "You'll pay for this, Digi-man! Take this!"
Metal Man (GM): He shoots a beam at Digi, which causes him to be hit by himself from the last attack he did, which hits equally as good as it hit The Void. 175 light damage to Digi.
Metal Man: "Gyahhh! Eat this, mind killer!"
Digifanatic: *BAMBAMBAMBAMBAM* "I'm not concerned."
Metal Man charges The Void with his energy axe, twice.
Metal Man (GM): *SLICE* *SLICE*
Metal Man: "You could try reviving Garrick... I can let him use my axe."
Aribar nods and tries to do so by rushing over to Garrick and using a Blue Potion on him. (+500 HP, +150 SP.)
Metal Man (GM): Garrick is healed by the potion.
Garrick slowly lets his eyes open once more... "...what...?"
Aetos: .oO(I think the Void's power will be most handy.) *He raises his hand to The Void and tries to absorb an attack of his. Mimic.*
Aribar: "Get into the fight. Metal has an axe for you and we need your help against the Void."
Metal Man: "You can help; you helped me, now I help you, Garrick."
Metal Man (GM): Health is given to, then taken away, this process fueling itself and dealing damage per round.
Garrick: "...r... right..."
Metal Man: "Then you can help me again by hitting The Void with all your might."
The Void: "Grrr... Teamwork never works!"
Aetos: "This is a strange power..."
Garrick slowly gets to his feet, but can barely move. His armor is deactivated completely, so it's nothing but dead weight... he growls, then hits a button. With a hiss and a bang, the armor folds off of him and lands in a nice, neat little package on the ground. He looks to Metal...
Aetos: "Is it good, or bad..."
Garrick: "...the axe."
The Void: "It is a power used to destroy the Questers. You would never dare use it against me, I know that much."
Aetos holds his hand up to Metal Man... This power activates upon him.
Metal Man hands Garrick the Axe, which deals 21 damage and makes whatever attacks it is used with fire elemental. Metal takes 10 damage; he starts glowing on and off crazily. "Might I suggest pinning Aetos to a wall?"
Aetos holds his shield over his face, and peeks over the top of it.
Digifanatic goes for just a Fire Punch and then defends--he doesn't want to do anything that will make him stand out offense-wise.
Metal Man (GM): Hit.
Garrick hefts the axe in his hands, looking at the vile creature in front of him and getting into a makeshift battle stance with it.
Metal Man (GM): Garrick burns The Void a little... then things get a bit crazier. Tridus walks in, carrying the Chaos Maker.
Tridus:"...I hate all of you... including The Void... all of you shall die!"
Digifanatic plans to defend, and then sees Tridus appearing. "Oh man..."
The Void: "...Huh?"
Digifanatic: .oO(Why does he hate us now?)
Metal Man: "...This just keeps on getting better and better."
Garrick: "...his heart... his mind... and his soul..."
Tridus: "I shall kill all of you for your sins against me!"
Metal Man: "Nice to see how logical he is."
Digifanatic quickly continues on, trying to catch Tridus off guard with a Celestial Fury instead.
Metal Man (GM): He blocks you with his sword. Digi tries to hurt him, but he seems... immortal.
Tridus:"I am all the power The Void once had. See how weak he is? I am so much stronger!"
Digifanatic: "I thought you were going to help us..."
Tridus: "...It was all a ploy. All along... hahahahahaha!"
Garrick: "Metal, you know more than I do... how closer are we to defeating the Void?"
Metal Man: "...Lame villain, I wasn't even evil enough to make him smart. We'll need to beat up The Void quite a bit more. That idiot may come in handy."
Aribar: "Would you mind killing the Void then and then we can sort the rest out without a being of pure Chaos?"
Tridus: "Chaos? Never. I am a being... of EVIL!"
The Void: "...Then gimme my sword back, you cad. Now... stop hitting me, you digital jerk!"
Metal Man (GM): He raises a hand, and Digi suddenly looks... odd.
Metal Man: "Ignore Tridus. I shall distract him."
Garrick gives the axe a small twirl in his hands, then charges at the Void once more... he chops downward, then sideward, then slams the head of the axe into the Void's gut...
Digifanatic stares down at himself. "Wha...?"
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit, hit. The Void snarls.
Garrick falls backwards and winds the axe back, then brings it crashing in an upward slash to send him flying.
Metal Man (GM): Hit, though he doesn't really 'fly.'
Metal Man: "I think this is all here for a reason... if this keeps up, they shall all returneth to me."
Garrick backs up slightly, panting a little...
Metal Man: "Now then..." *Walks up to Tridus.* "You're awfully angry for no reason. Back in the old days, we massacred people. What's wrong with you!"
Tridus: "...Niobody cares what I do anymore. That Aetos freak gets more attention than me! I just wind up being ignored..."
Metal Man: "...Then fight him."
The Void: *Looks at Metal and Tridus.* "Oh no. They're going to team up. Aetos, destroy Tridus!"
Aetos: "...My head feels funny."
Metal Man (GM): He powers up Aetos with some energy, and then Metal runs back down. Tridus, meanwhile, looks seriously ticked.
Tridus:"...Aetos said I wore pink bunny slippers? GAHHHHHH!!!!"
Aetos turns to Tridus.
Tridus: "I'll slice him into steaks for that blasphemy..." Tridus leaps on down and glows; he looks odd... at least, to Aetos.
Aribar thrusts Moonlight into the air and a bolt of lightning arcs from the tip to the misty figure of the Void. The mage brings the sword back before pointing it again at the chaotic figure and causing another lightning bolt to lance towards the Void.
Metal Man: "That should give us enough time to fix this mess. Man am I fractured."
Aetos watches Tridus glow. "This may be an odd time to ask... but who is Smithy? His name keeps ringing in my head."
The Void: "Fix this mess? Bah! I shall destroy everything at last! All I need to do is crush all of these jerks running around."
Garrick: "May I ask that we stop talking in the midst of the fight and just fight?"
Tridus: "...One of The Void's original servants, who defected to Charles's side and was then killed by the Evil SIMBER."
Metal Man: "...Well, I'm not talking. However, that depends upon who you're looking at."
Aetos raises his hand again and uses the Perpetual Motion technique on Tridus.
Metal Man (GM): Aetos uses it, but hits a wall... a strange force field around Tridus.
Tridus:"Hah! I was the original host of The Void, and in his presence, I have his original powers. You cannot defeat me!"
Garrick: "The Void took Nova... I cannot forgive him for doing such..."
Digifanatic has no idea what exactly happened to him last time around, so all he does is plan on using one more Matrix on the Void.
Metal Man (GM): Hit. Digi misses The Void, somehow, though. Instead, the attack hits Digi. The weird stuff dissipates.
Digifanatic defends shortly after beaming him, but...? "I hate this..."
The Void: "Bah. Take this, you Kuja-lover!"
Metal Man (GM): He shoots Garrick with a beam, which causes him to gain 50 to his intelligence stat. However, his mind is overloaded so he cannot act. Metal shoots up The Void with his machineguns.
Digifanatic gets smacked by the own medicine--err--beams, but he still has a decent amount of health left.
Metal Man (GM): *BLAMBLAMBLAMBLAM.*
Garrick screams once again, dropping the axe and falling to his knees.
Tridus: "I'm not going to just take one turn this round..." He speeds up. "Muuuch better. Now... feel the pain of my blade!" He powers up again, and then slashes at Aetos madly.
Garrick is currently on the ground, holding his head in his hands, the feeling of a mind splitting headache of epic proportions slamming through him..
Aetos holds up his shield and growls as the blade rapidly slices at him.
Metal Man (GM): He crits Aetos over and over again in a blind fury of hatred, dealing tons of damage. That sword HURTS. On the plus side, the weird field around him dissipates.
Garrick: "Make it stop... someone make it STOP!"
The Void: "Hahahahahahaaa!"
Aetos falls to the ground before Tridus. *Deadinated.*
Metal Man: "...I think The Void is trying to damage us by confusing us to death."
Tridus: "...That should take care of him."
Aribar glances over to Garrick and wonders what vile enchantment has be cast on him... Worry later! Battle's here and now! He continues to be sapped by the Void's curse and decides to step things up a notch by launching another series of cuts and slashes at the Void.*
Metal Man (GM): Hit, hit, hit, hit.
Tridus: "Hmmm... he's not that strong. Perhaps I should attack The Void instead... but this sword is worthless against him."
Digifanatic wishes he could attack Tridus, but his power makes him way too powerful to target, nevermind risky. He goes for a simple Light Punch.
Garrick is laying there, next to Metal, and gently crying tears of pain as his mind is slammed with so many thoughts and so much information that he feels like he's gonna die...
Metal Man (GM): Hit to Mr. Void. Garrick's mind is turned back to normal as the next round begins.
Digifanatic defends to finish his turn.
The Void: "I've had enough of being hit... Chaos... CONTROL!"
Metal Man (GM): He vanishes.
Aribar: "Uh oh..."
Metal Man: "...I don't like the looks of that. ...Now what?"
Aribar: "Prepare yourself. Heal up and activate defenses!"
Tridus: "...Huh." *Defends.*
Garrick pants as he slowly begins to get to his feet... picking up the axe at his feet... He swallows hard, then gripping the axe a bit tighter, he gets into a defensive stance..
Aribar casts Mage Armor on himself and then downs a Blue Potion. Turn over.*
Aetos is revived. He glances back to where the Chaos Emeralds were.
Metal Man (GM): They're in a heap, near Jeff Maxwell.
Digifanatic: "Are you crazy? It's only going to make this battle worse due to what those can do to The Void."
Aetos stops to think... then makes a run for the emeralds.
Digifanatic: "Listen, I dunno how far--STOP! Listen for once!"
Ivan Robotnik: (Comms) "The Void's control on the city is weakening! Finish him off and I will be able to use the power of Atlantis against him!"
Metal Man (GM): Aetos runs to the Emeralds.
Aribar: "Aetos, leave those alone!"
Garrick: "Jeff, Phantom, Sky High! Stop him!"
Digifanatic: *facepalm.* "That guy just doesn't get it!"
Jeff Maxwell: "...Arm... dented..."
Phantom: "Somebody put potato chips in the computer chips!"
Aetos tries to haul them into his arms.
Sky High: "Yah!" *Punches Aetos before he can touch the emeralds.*
Aetos: "Wait... Sky High!!" *glares at him.*
Sky High: "...The emeralds are highly charged. If you touched them, you might... die."
Aribar: "...Touch them, Aetos!"
Sky High: "At least, I poked them several times and they burned my fingers."
Digifanatic: "Ari, shut up!"
Aetos: "I see..."
Aribar mutters an apology.*
Sky High: "Then I licked them and they burned my tongue."
Digifanatic: "Don't provoke him."
Sky High: "Now I need a spike-filled coffin to shove them off of Victoria falls with."
Garrick: "...I wish Nova was here..."
Aetos ends his turn in front of Sky High.
Digifanatic just decides to keep on defending like the others--twice for his turn.
Sky High: "I'm a master of dangerous devices... and those things are more dangerous than... the mind control gel I invented."
Digifanatic: "Brace time."
The Void: "I've had enough of ALL of you! ARMAARMARMARMARMAGEDDONEEEEOOOONGEDDONGEDDONGEEEDDDON!!!"
Aetos turns to The Void now.
Metal Man (GM): He uses Chaos Control to spam Armageddon in all directions, turning the entire room into an exploding attack area. 1000 damage to everyone.
Aetos would fall to the ground along with Sky High.
Sky High: "Gah!" *Is knocked back.*
Garrick is sent skidding backward. Without his armor, the attack hurts horribly... but he lives... barely, but he does.
Aribar: *The elf is burninated, blastinated, and bobdolinated.*
Metal Man (GM): The Void then reappears, to an angry Metal, who takes out a dryer and hurls it at The Void.
The Void: "What did you think of---OW!"
Digifanatic is obviously dead from all this, just blasted back to wherever...
Metal Man (GM): The Void takes 50 fire damage.
Digifanatic: *2/3 lives left.*
Metal Man (GM): Tridus lays on the ground, rather heavily injured.
Garrick: "...if Tridus is gone... there's not much we can do.......still... here goes nothing..."
Metal Man: "We can beat the rest of the tar out of The Void."
Garrick brings his arm back, his muscles flexing as he charges and hopes to the... the Goddesses. Yeah, Hyrule's Goddesses that he's not hit...
Sky High: "...The emeralds... won't work if you grab them. Even if I can't stop you... it won't make a difference."
Garrick: "Metal, I'm draining a lot of time into this next one... I'd appreciate a little cover..."
Aetos still lies on the ground, but pulls out his X-zone Crystal.
Metal Man: "Whatever you say."
Aetos: "I will take these emeralds one way or another, and protect them from evil like Tridus."
Metal Man (GM): The crystal itself glows. It seems to flicker, though.
Aetos stares at the Crystal, then commands it to acquire the Chaos Emeralds.
Metal Man (GM): Aetos commands the crystal; the crystal explodes.
Digifanatic: "Uh... uh-oh."
The Void: "The Emeralds are under my power, Aetos. It is too late to take them from me. In fact... they are what sealed me away for most of Kuja's reign."
Digifanatic: "If there's anything to do to stop powering him..."
Aetos releases it. .oO(I was taking them FOR you...)
The Void: "But then you decided to use them so much, against Kuja, that I was totally revived."
Metal Man: "Just beat him down; he's not as powerful without Tridus."
Metal Man (GM): The The Void strikes Garrick with another round of Armageddon; 1000 damage. Metal shoots up The Void.
Garrick goes flying back, losing his charge... he swears under his breath and... dies.
The Void: "See how futile fighting me is... I have outlasted the great Kuja!"
Aribar comes back in a flash of light... One life down, two to go. The elf stands, his strength sapped by the Void's curse, and tries to get ready for a big assault.*
Aetos picks himself off the ground. "Sky High, why did you stop me from grabbing the emeralds? You seem to want me to live." He holds his hand out to Sky.
Sky High: "...Because you're more useful alive than dead?"
The Void: "If I die, then I must laugh... you cannot kill nothing!"
Aetos holds his hand out to Sky, so Sky will stand.
Metal Man (GM): Sky grabs his hand and stands up.
Aetos whispers to SkyHigh and ends his turn.
Digifanatic doesn't bother with waiting: he's a bit angry now and he wants a bit of revenge--he wastes no time in pulling a Fire Punch followed by a Running Charge.
Garrick slowly hovers back up and is revived... minus a turn this time.
Sky High: *Nods, slightly... but doesn't quite move.*
Garrick: "...now I can't even get an attack off..."
The Void: "Good."
Metal Man (GM): Garrick, and all the Questers begin glowing, taking 10 damage per round now.
Digifanatic barely takes anything...
The Void: "...Oh no. Here comes the cursing madman."
Julian: "Long as we all standin' we good, ya?" *And Julian's there now! Wow!* "Remember this, Void?" *Julian takes out Vendetta and lights it up! And then he charges, going for a horizontal strike.* *CRITICAL!*
Metal Man (GM): Julian slashes The Void with it. He's hit by it, as usual.
The Void: "...Ow!"
Digifanatic: "Nice slice..."
Julian: *Julian then slices again! There, diagonally!*
The Void: "I won't let you cut me down like Kuja."
Metal Man (GM): The Void gets an evil grin. Hit.
Julian: *And then Julian slashes The Void all up with combo-finishing Whirlwind Slasher!*
Metal Man (GM): All sorts of hits. He's very nearly killed by that... in fact, he looks almost dead.
Digifanatic: "Well done, Julian..."
The Void: "HOW DARE YOU MOCK THE VOID? I SHALL UNLEASH ALL OF MY POWER NOW!"
Julian: "And tha's how you do it!" *Julian jumps back, Vendetta still brandished.*
Digifanatic: "Oh man... Guys, only pull off whatever is most powerful. Don't slack around conserving anything."
Julian: "'Hell you think I just did?"
The Void: "It was his weakest attack. I just know it! Hit him for it, Digi!"
Digifanatic: "Shut up, beast."
Julian: "Shut yo' damn mouth and take your beating."
The Void: "You have no clue how ironic that is... heheheahaahahahahaahahaha!"
Garrick growls lowly, then brings his axe up and begins to charge... he runs forward toward The Void, his arms flaring as he brings his axe up in a blazing red slash "Payment for Nova..."
The Void: "Gahhh... so much pain... must survive through more attacks..."
Aribar: "Now... Erwin give me strength! I shall smite you, Chaos!" *The elf's blade flares with electrical energy. Aribar unleashes a flurry of furious sword slashes upon the Void.*
Metal Man (GM): Aribar beat the snot out of the Void; the Void starts falling all apart.
Digifanatic: "This just may be the time to start running..."
The Void: "Curse... you... Buzz Lightyear!"
Metal Man: "Huh?"
Metal Man (GM): He falls down, and then begins to fall apart...
Charles is finally awakened from his protective barrier... except to see that he wasn't needed... perhaps..
The Void: "...JIIINXXXXX!!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He comes up, and then begins an onslaught of attacks.
The Void: "CHAOS CONTROLLL!!!"
Metal Man (GM): He suddenly speeds up...
Julian: "Aw HELL NAH! You did NOT just do tha-" *CHAOS CONTROL!*
The Void: "...IRONY!!!!"
Metal Man (GM): Julian is suddenly hit by vendetta as The Void is healed. 2368 damage to him.
The Void: "...OVERTHINKING!"
Metal Man (GM): Garrick's mind is overwhelmed again.
The Void: "ARMAGEDDON!"
Metal Man (GM): Digi is blasted for 5000 damage.
The Void: "BETRAYAL!"
Digifanatic is killed again...
Metal Man (GM): Aetos loses half his health and curses Aribar again.
The Void: "PERPETUAL MOTION!"
Metal Man (GM): Everyone takes 10 more damage per round.
The Void: "GRANDFATHER!"
Aetos kneels once more, he looks up at SkyHigh.
Metal Man (GM): Everyone is suddenly hit again and again and again by all the attacks they used against The Void.
The Void: "All Bosses of the past! DESTROY EVERYTHING!"
Metal Man (GM): Wily's saucer appears and explodes, dealing even more damage.
Digifanatic is not really hit by anything because he already died before then...
Metal Man (GM): Everyone takes damage. Smithy appears and crushes everyone with X-zone energy. Tridus appears and attacks people with all his 'Virtues', screwing up reality. Kuja appears and hits everything with Flare Star. Kales appears and stabs Tridus. A lot. Everything begins to fall apart... however. The sword of Order glows, and so does the entire room; even as everyone is killed over and over and over and over and over again...
Metal Man (GM): *TSEER.* The Sword of Order stabs The Void, flying out of Charles's thousand-time-dead-over hands. The Chaos emeralds explode. The Chaos Maker explodes. The room lights up as Atlantis's defenses are powered up; everyone wakes up like they had never been hit by The Void.
Julian: "...What the hell was that?"
The Void: "...It's all... over... those emeralds... failed me... "
Digifanatic: *revived.* "You said it..."
Metal Man (GM): All magitek, on anyone, suddenly explodes.
Charles: "What... in the world?"
Garrick: "...Gerald... he used Atlantis' power to defeat him..."
Metal Man (GM): The room cracks a little, and then The Void burns.
Julian: *Good thing Julian's Giga Gear isn't magitek anymore.*
Aetos feels a book in his abyss... the magitek necklace exploded.
Garrick has no magitek, but those guns Metal had would explode...
The Void: "...You... killed me... because you worked together."
Julian: "...You sure? 'Cause he's dead. Tha's how it works."
The Void: "...Into the nothingness I go! None shall catch me anymore!"
Digifanatic: *nothing of his explodes.* "This is absolutely crazy. And if we killed you, why are you talking?"
Aribar just stands there and listens and watches, not sure what is going on.
Julian: "Go! Get! Shoo! Outta here!"
Metal Man (GM): The Void disintegrates, and the energy flies into Metal; Tridus, too, turns to dust, which also flies into Metal.
Julian: "End the *Censored.* madness!"
Garrick: "Julian, shut up."
Azure: "I'm not so sure..."
Julian: "Make me, Hero Boy."
Charles looks to the particles of matter flowing into Metal... then looks to where the Sword of Order is.
Metal Man (GM): The Sword of Order... is dustified. A rumbling can be felt.
Azure: "Shouldn't his place be falling apart with such a ..."
Digifanatic: *Levels up twice.*
Azure: "...never mind..."
Julian: "...Azure called it."
Ivan Robotnik: (Comms) "...There's an energy reaction..."
Metal Man (GM): *FLASH!*
Aribar: "...Now what?"
Metal Man (GM): Nintendus suddenly comes back into view. It's... fixed up.
Digifanatic: "That's better..."
Julian: "...Hell yeah!"
Azure: "What was once a shattered reality is coming back into focus. The picture and pieces return to the frame."
Metal Man (GM): The whole world appears to be free again; even Eisnaught stands again.
Aribar: "For the love of Truland tell me the madness is over..."
Metal Man: "...It is now, Aribar."
Charles: "It's over."
Digifanatic: "Peace has finally returned..."
Metal Man stands up, looking like his old self.
Digifanatic: "Anyone want to return home for a small bit?"
Julian: "Thank *censored.* God."
Charles: "I want to know what year it is on the Nintendus calendar."
Digifanatic: "And I mean, literally, home. If I can figure out enough things properly... I can get you guys back for a bit."
Ivan Robotnik: "The same one we just left; 10 years, at the very end of Kuja's reign... except his stuff was... destroyed." *He walks in.*
Metal Man (GM): Now visible is... the full Stadium, down below.
Metal Man (GM): All the smashers are outside it; in fact, VG is down there too.
Aribar: "Back home... It sounds like an impossible wish now."
Julian: "...And we're back."
VG: "I see them!" *points up.*
Metal Man (GM): A white light appears at the center of the room.
Ivan Robotnik: "...It isn't quite as impossible as it seems, VG. That light... should you choose..." *cough.* "It will take you home."
Digifanatic: "Oh, isn't that so relieving?"
Metal Man (GM): Atlantis lands right in front of Quester HQ.
Azure: "Home... can you be sure of that..?"
Metal Man (GM): A ramp folds out; you can exit it now, and head to HQ itself.
VG: "But... if they take the light... can they ever come back?"
Aribar: "Home to Whaller... Eh?" *The elf looks to the city that lands in front of their stadium.*
Digifanatic: "No more letters for now... I can finally feel at ease."
Charles: "I believe it's time to leave this place and return to HQ, don't you think?"
Metal Man: "...What we last witnessed was too confusing to really make sense of, but it is over for now."
Julian: "...So what now?"
Aribar: "Would we ever be able to come back to Nintendus?"
Metal Man: "...If they so choose, yes. However, no more are to be forced here against their will."
Digifanatic: "I want to stay here for a while. I just want to return for maybe a day or two... and finally tell everybody I know that I am alright."
Aribar: "...Yeah. That sounds nice."
Metal Man walks outside. "The Void, and Kuja, have been defeated. The world... is safe, and back in a peaceful state."
Julian: "Man, all I got home are a couple trophies 'n *censored.* I'd like to pick up. Everyone probly figures I headed out West without tellin' anyone."
Aribar: .oO(Nintendus is safe, but I don't think I can say the same for Whaller...)
Charles walks out as well.
Azure: "For now at least."
Metal Man (GM): The Smashers cheer, and Ivan walks out with the others.
Digifanatic: "This is the thing I've felt I've always wanted to be with when I realized it. To just quit now would not be right..."
Ivan Robotnik: "...The Chaos Emeralds, and all of the requisite artifacts of evil have been destroyed permanently."
Digifanatic: "That's good."
Link: "...And look what I found!" *Hoists up Triforce.*
Julian: *Julian walks down the ramp, figuring going back just to pick up a few collectables ain't worth it.* "Coo'."
Azure: Should you be... just throwing that up like that...
VG cheers along with the Smashers.
Julian: "What? Not like anyone's gonna steal it."
Link: "...Well, I found it in a ditch. If it was going to be stolen, it would have been earlier."
Mewtwo: "However... there are going to be some... changes."
Charles: "I agree."
VG doesn't recall changes...
Digifanatic: "People and... non-people alike... I wish to leave for a small bit of time. I will return as soon as possible, but don't expect to see me for at least a couple of days... yes, Mewtwo?"
VG: "What are you thinking of Mewtwo?"
Julian: "...How'd the HELL it'd get into a ditch?"
Charles gives a look of mischievousness.
Aribar turns to Mewtwo and wonders what the pokemon will say.
Mewtwo: "...The smashers must protect their home places again, and have long missed their homes. Rather, a league is to be established, in which you guys may fight, as well as any other eligible fighters."
Digifanatic: "Phew. I'm not alone."
Julian: "...Jus' like the old days."
VG recalls this now... he was thinking something else.
Mewtwo: "We shall remain as the defenders of Nintendus, of course; I have no home other than the Stadium. But we won't have to protect it quite so often!"
Jeff Maxwell: *Walks out.* "All traces of the evil Solarian machines and their fake magitek have vanished."
Nova: *Appears, looking completely normal.* "Planet function is now normal."
VG: "Mewtwo, I'd watch out for that... you know how fate can mess with what we say."
Charles: "...Yet there is still unfinished business."
Digifanatic: "So Julian, are you finally going to fight Aetos, or did I miss something?"
Nova: "Avon was... a casualty of Kuja... but we all know he was merely one of Gerald's pawns."
Dr. Mario: "Woo-hoo! I can start up my klepto... I mean business again!"
Julian: "If he feels like gettin' his *** kicked 'fore what he's been doin', then why not?"
Donkey Kong: "Candy has been waiting for me too long..."
Professor Oak: "...I shall be sure to make many new Pikachu-powered inventions. After all, you guys deserve to be shocked! ...That came out wrong, didn't it?"
VG: *Face fault*
Smashers: *face fault.*
Azure: "This... gateway... will we be able to remove freely between our own worlds and this one?"
Metal Man: "...Of course, things wouldn't be complete without ending the circle." *He takes out the fighter remote.*
VG: "...what will you do with that?"
Metal Man: "...As it turns out, this is what caused all that nasty business in the first place. Except... we don't use it anymore."
VG: "I thought it was the Transformer..." *brings out his dead one.*
Metal Man: "That was an offshoot of this."
Julian: "So you gonna smash it?"
Metal Man: "Old-school."
VG: "I got this one. Set er down please."
Metal Man hurls the fighter remote into the air and shoots it into pieces with... a DVD launcher?
Digifanatic: "You have quite a knack, Metal."
Metal Man takes VG's and smashes it with a dryer, too. "No more random move-giving to people."
Metal Man: "It's what messed my head up in the first place..."
Professor Oak: "I hadn't expected any cyborgs to join us..." *sweatdrop.*
Charles: "Even if Nintendus is at peace, it won't stay that way for long..." *smile turns to a grimace.*
VG: "...don't remind me..." *He does miss Wolfman a bit.*
Metal Man: "Well, maybe, but we certainly won't worry about interdimensional jerks."
Charles: "...Already, I can sense a new evil rising."
Digifanatic: "What makes you suspect that, Charles."
Julian: "Yeah, but we got peace now, right? All that matters."
Aribar takes out his Transformer. "I wonder... Would it be possible to get Mr. Monster out of here permanently?"
Metal Man: "Hmmm... I wonder where Garrick is." *He fumbles and takes something out of his pocket.* "What could this be?"
VG wonders what Metal has...
Mewtwo: "Just press the red button on the transformer; it'll be deactivated afterwards."
Metal Man looks at the odd device.
Garrick: *bzzt.* *click.* Garrick appears in a sputtering, grainny looking hologram.
Aribar: "Thanks, Mewtwo... I'll do that later when I get the chance to talk to him."
Garrick: "So, you FINALLY pulled this out of your pocket, Metal??"
Digifanatic: "Pulled what?"
Metal Man: "Well, I was busy smashing fighter remotes."
VG chuckles, as do some of the Smashers.
Aribar: "...Garrick? What happened to you? And where's Aetos?"
Julian: "Yeah, what's up wit' 'dis?"
Digifanatic: "He's probably ran off somewhere causing havoc--nah, I only kid."
Garrick: "Man, you're something, you know that? Too busy talking about life and destiny and crap." It's a recording..
Metal Man: "...Well, Aetos can't cause much harm. The Void is now a part of me again."
Garrick: "Anyway, I guess I should explain myself."
Digifanatic wonders if that recording was directed at himself.
Mewtwo: "That's probably a good idea."
Garrick: "Now that everything is back to normal, I can go out and find what it is I'm searching for. Heh... I don't know where my little adventure will take me, but this time I can really have it without Kuja and the Void getting in the way."
Digifanatic: "Good luck with that, alright?"
Garrick shrugs "Who knows? Maybe I will come back and join you guys again. Depends on what I find and when I find it."
Julian: "...*censored.* Hero Boy stuff all over again."
VG: "Let him Julian."
Garrick: "To the Smashers, welcome back to Nintendus. I would have REALLY liked to have trained under you, Link, what with the sword and all."
Ivan Robotnik: "There's no harm. No evil remains."
Garrick: "But, I think if I find my own way, it'll be more... meaningful."
Digifanatic: "He has a point."
Aribar nods to Garrick's hologram...*
Garrick: "To the Questers, I say... thanks. You've shown me a lot of good times and helped me realize a few things. Good luck with your new group. I might come around sometime... Metal, take the Dauntless, even though it's MY ship..."
Metal Man: "...Eheh..."
Charles: "If it's been repaired by now... then I'll be surprised."
Garrick: "Oh, and Julian, ease off the swearing, alright?"
VG and the Smashers laugh a lot.
Garrick: "It might make you look a little more... distinctive and not so much of a... well... idiot." *He chuckles.*
Digifanatic: "He was never an idiot..."
Aribar smirks at that.*
Garrick: "Well, I've said my piece, so get to doing whatever you need to do."
Digifanatic: "He just likes to use... interesting... words."
Metal Man: "Words of... uhh... wisdom?"
Garrick: "I'll stop by sometime, maybe with a few tricks up my sleeve. Catch you later, guys. It's been real." *click.* *Veeeww..*
Digifanatic: "No problem, Garrick... nevermind."
Metal Man: "...But has Aetos left any holograms anywhere?"
Metal Man looks around on the ground, in the dirt, in one of Digi's ears, and then possibly at Atlantis.
Fox: "I don't recall Aetos being the holographic type..."
Zelda: "He used magic more than technology."
Metal Man: "Hmmm... I don't see anything laying around, though I do see a lot of dirt."
Digifanatic: "For all we know, he could be anywhere. Trust me."
Aribar: "Aetos betrayed us during our final battle. He probably ran away in shame."
Charles: "Too bad he isn't psych--- ...Zemus."
Charles breathes deeply.
Metal Man: "...You keep on saying his name like it's a brand of soda."
Digifanatic: "Excuse me?"
Garrick, who is now at least a mile away, smirks as he totes his folded up armor over his shoulder, Metal's axe, his sword, and the shield strapped to his back. He heads west...
Metal Man: "I should really get myself some sort of fighting style... that last fight showed off only how split up I am."
Mewtwo: "I almost forgot to pay you."
Mewtwo: "...For all of your outstanding bravery... have 10,000 coins.....And 90,000 more." *chuckles.*
Charles: "The traitor. By now---oh thank you--!!"
Julian: "If Aetos shows back up, someone's gettin' their *censored.* skull split. And I aint' gonna be me... Thanks."
Aribar: "...Hey! That's standard mission fare! Heh. More like it."
Charles opens one of his pockets and a vacuum noise is heard as his share is going into it.
Metal Man: "Eh, I can see that the Questers may never be as organized as they were before; but we don't have any one threat left, so I guess it's natural."
Charles: "Are you kidding?"
Digifanatic: "I think that with what Charles was saying earlier, I'm not quite sure. I'd say let him speak."
Metal Man: "I'm thinking that's your personal mission, Charles."
VG doesn't recall everything about this being organized here...
Charles: "Perhaps... I can say one thing for certainty, though."
Digifanatic: "Please do."
Metal Man: "Since we have our hands free, you can go ahead and have our help; but we protect Nintendus."
Ivan Robotnik: "It's hard to believe Eisnaught is around again... no longer will I have to produce weapons."
Charles: "Zemus is may be my problem, but as for here? How do I say it delicately..."
Phantom: "...And I... will sell guns! Guns! Expensive, deadly guns!"
Charles: "...Evil still exists out there."
Editor's Note: Once he said Lumis was still out there, but that was godmodding so extreme I had to edit it out, given how extremely Lumis Dongthar had been destroyed by Kuja. There is no Lumis Dongthar left, anywhere.
Digifanatic: "After with what we just dealt with... whatever remains should be a walk in the park."
Ivan Robotnik: "But all the evil was destroyed!"
Charles: "You can say all you want about how we destroyed the evil... just that it still exists, elsewhere."
VG: "Phantom, aren't you supposed to be dead by now?"
Metal Man (GM): *shrug.*
Digifanatic: "Should being the key word."
Charles: "I'm guessing... back to its own realm it crawled back to."
Phantom: "...I was revived by The Void, who then died. I'm scott free now."
Julian: "So it ain't our problem no more."
Phantom: "I got to murder a whole bunch of evil soldiers."
VG: "...just keep the murdering to those that deserve to be murdered, alright?"
Phantom: "Sure thing, guvnah!" *Smacks VG on the back of the head, in a strange 'friendly' fashion.*
Charles: "Nope. Not our problem..."
VG felt it on the hat.
Jeff Maxwell: "I shall join your scientists and work on building an entire MTA fleet, from now on."
Metal Man (GM): Jeff takes off his broken glasses and hurls them away, accepting a new pair of them from Oak. They look less... crazy. He puts them on.
Jeff Maxwell: "I think I saw things wrong through those broken glasses. Every one of you looked evil through them, and The Void looked like some sort of good guy. ...On second thought, I shouldn't have thrown them away like that."
Charles: "Speaking of scientists, I'll be happy to accept a few of helping me get to the Earth of my dimension. I don't know how much longer they can go without being corrupted by Zemus's psychic powers and having no way to escape it for a good amount of years."
Metal Man: "I believe Atlantis will be able to do that for you, in time. Right now, I have reruns of robot fighting madness to watch."
Charles: "By them I mean Ricky, Bob, and the third system."
Metal Man walks off.
Metal Man (GM): The rest of the smashers begin to dissemble.
Aribar: .oO(All of these discussion of plans... I'll need to think of what to do now.)
Charles: "...Hey, Julian."
Ivan Robotnik: "It's time to get back to work. We must get the economy going again, after all."
Falco: "Race you to see who gets to beat up Slippy first!"
Fox: "You're on!"
Ivan Robotnik: *Hops in a vehicle and flies to Eisnaught.*
Aribar: "And we're dismissed... Nothing to do for once. Too weird..."
Charles: "After you rest, I'd be happy to give you a tour--err I mean a demonstration of how strong the fiends are on the Moon."
Mewtwo: "Indeed." *Goes inside.*
Charles: "In case you want life-threatening situations, that is."
VG goes inside to help Mewtwo... he doesn't have anywhere else to go... and he still needs to learn some more cooking techniques.
Samus: "Or you can fight me in the arena."
Aribar breaks away from Julian and Charles, following Mewtwo into the building. He would head to his room and summon Mr. Monster out of the Transformer... It's time for an explanation of what has just happened, if that's even possible to do.
Metal Man (GM): Samus walks inside; many other smashers leave. The credits start to roll in the foreground.
Charles leaves inside, preparing for the next level of power.
Metal Man (GM): SUPER SMASH QUEST BOOK 1: The Properties of Chaos and Law. Founders: Wolfman. Klumsy Koopa (aka Nick Caligo) Main GMs: Metal Man. Wolfman.
Julian: "Lemme think first... over some food. Haven't had a decent meal since we got back from Turion."
Metal Man (GM): Klumsy Koopa. Yurie. Aribar. Locos Docos. Players: *Insert endless list.* *Credits catch on fire.* Metal walks in the foreground and sprays the credits with a fire extinguisher.
Metal Man: "Nothing to see here, folks." *Walks back off to the side.*
Editor's Note: I thanked the old hosting for SSQ. Which no longer hosts SSQ. And I hate the people on the forum related to that old site too. So I have deleted the references to those two sites. On the other hand, Hal and Nick are much cooler than those sites.
Metal Man (GM): Special Thanks: hal_emmerich: For saving many site pieces with his expertise in the past. Klumsy/Nick_Caligo: For extensive work on the system, and teaching. All of the members of SSQ's Dark Age: For putting up with some really horrible stuff.
Metal Man (GM): The cast of #Meh: For helping me learn how to GM in the first place. Thesquare: Uhhhhh... don't ask. Spyke, and Miles: For the self-rolling dice script.
VG: #Mavhunt: For the inspiration for this RPG.
Metal Man (GM): All of those crazy DnD people: For making Dragons and Dungeons. I mean Dungeons and Dragons. DW: For inspiring me to GM harder, and giving me some competition.
VG: Pie: The official desert of the Questers.
Metal Man (GM): Gibby: --- *Gibby walks in and presses a red button.*
Metal Man: "Hey!"
Metal Man (GM): *Credits explode.* Coming soon: Super Smash Quest Book 2, Season 7. Just wait for Metal to finish his system. The last one. Seriously. I hope so. Otherwise you guys should smack me.
Editor's Note: *Smacks past self with a rock*
VG: *after credits scene!*
Metal Man walks on the burnt credits. "...Where did Aetos go, again?"
Metal Man walks off and the burnt credits vanish.
Wolfman: *AFTER AFTER CREDITS SCENE.*
Metal Man (GM): *Camera is now back at HQ.*
Wolfman(GM): After the celebrations and whatnot, the cities and towns are at piece. However... a warp portal opens. Out comes... something: it's hard to see in the darkness. Three things are known. 1) He looks to the direction of the Stadium. 2) He howls. 3) He starts going over. *HIJACK OVA!*
Metal Man (GM): That's all for this show, folks!
